I think I downloaded a few more shots of Turkey yesterday....if I can find them I will post them. The top shot is of some amazing hot spring baths which have formed natural pools among the limestone stalagmites (or is it stalactities?) When we visited the weather was very dry so the pools were scant but the terrain is really amazing. We met this incredibly beautiful calico cat among the ruins of Finiki I believe. And the squirrel I met somewhere along the way even though I did not have a peanut in any pocket. Dammit, I had one more set of pics but I cannot locate them right now so I will just send these off and follow up later. No, that is a lie.....I have located them, but somehow they got zipped and blogger does not seem to have the technique to deal with that so I will have to download them again being sure that no zippers are anywhere around. Sob.
